Posse Comitatus Much?

What are the Army and Marines doing acting as traffic police INSIDE the United States?!?

I found this video in Youtube, and have no evidence to its accuracy. (UPDATED NOTE: I just wanted to be clear that   I DO NOT AGREE with the dialouge that was posted as the video runs, I just wanted to show soldiers on the streets of Americs, which this video does)

This video comes from DemocracyNow:

What is posse comitatus?

“The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) that was passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction. Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of local governments and law enforcement agencies in using federal military personnel to enforce the laws of the land.” – From Wikkipedia here.

Basically, the Army, and Air Force are forbidden to act as police agencies inside the United States.

In 2011, the Washington Post reported that 20,000 US troops were to be used for domestic security purposes by order of the Pentagon.

Infowars has done an excellent job of tracking these violations as they occur across America.  Here’s a sampling:

These are just a few examples from 2009 until now.  This is scary stuff…
